What are skin tags?
Skin tags (or fibromas) are non-malignant growths, composed of fibrous tissue that can be either flat or raised. Skin tags appear as tiny pearl drops attached to the surface of the skin and can proliferate in ageing skins.
Why remove moles and skin tags?
Most moles and skin tags do not require removal or treatment. However, if you are concerned about them hindering your confidence and appearance, it might be a good option to get them professionally removed.
Safely removing skin tags or moles is not as easy as it sounds. Although many people try to remove moles themselves, it is recommended to get a professional to do it to avoid any infection or bleeding.
Most moles may not be malignant. However, it is necessary to take precautionary measures and have your moles and skin condition assess by the doctor before any removal is being done.
How are they removed?
There are several ways depending on the nature, size, and site of the lesions. Methods include cautery, surgical, and laser removal.
How long does the treatment take?
Most treatments are very quick (some take only a few seconds) and may not even touch the skin surface. You will experience only minimal discomfort and healing time (downtime) is short.
Do we need to check the mole in the lab?
In case of a suspicious mole, it is sent to a histopathology lab for evaluation of the nature of the cells. We collaborate with high standard labs with reliable reports. Dr. Faiza Al Ali is specialized in dermatopathology and will microscopically check the mole of any abnormalities.
